Dress Up Your Front Door This Halloween

One of the ways of getting into the spirit of Halloween is to decorate our homes to give that spooky feel and effect. Windows are adorned with scary representations of Halloween, the porch is teeming with man-made cobwebs out of cotton and the pumpkins are carved to show off a Jack O’Lantern face. Even the trees and bushes are not spared with plastic amputated limbs and skulls hiding in the bushes. Let’s not forget about the treats in the bowl and the out-of-this-world costumes to top the Halloween spirit.

Are we forgetting something in the whole process of giving the home a spooky look and feel? Well, there’s one thing you should also consider – the front door! Yes, it’s a big rectangular shape that can allow a lot of creative flair. So, here are some amazing, colorful, scarily cute front door decoration ideas this Halloween.

When Distressed and Tired Can Look Fresh and Stylish

In today’s society, we’re often driven by the desire to throw things away as soon as they reach a point where they don’t look as perfect as they did when we purchased them. From that new kitchen appliance to the new electronics you’ve just installed in your living room, we’re all too often replacing what we have with more up to date options as soon as they are available. Despite this common occurrence, in interior design, there’s been a shift over the past few years that has seen decorators and designers bring back and restore old pieces of furniture or upcycle old things that you might have thought useless. So how can you use your old, tired or distressed furniture to give your home an inspired, fresh look?  We explore a few unique ideas below.

Upcycling Your Garden Equipment

Many people think that the garden is the garden and your home is your home. In other words, that the two spaces shouldn’t mix., However this traditional view of things is starting to disappear as many designers see the potential of introducing elements to the home that you’d usually only find in the garden. Two good examples of this are wheelbarrows and wooden ladders. An old, metal wheelbarrow can be adapted into a shining metal chair if angled correctly and filled with colourful, soft cushions, and a set of wooden ladders makes for a great bespoke shelf if turned horizontally and placed against the wall. You could even repaint them to give them some real character.

Deck out Your Kitchen with Reclaimed Furniture

The kitchen is commonly the hub of the modern home, and this means that it’s essential that it is full of personality and bespoke flair. That’s because it’s probably one of the most often inhabited rooms of a home. So, instead of purchasing a kitchen table that looks like it’s straight off the shelf, why not order something a little but more unique. Stores like Trade Furniture Company sell reclaimed wooden tables that would make family meals a real pleasure.

An Authenticity to Your Bathroom

A final way that you could use old or tired looking materials to improve your home could be in the bathroom. Bathrooms are notoriously difficult to look unique. Most people’s bathrooms are white with accents of blue or green, but with some of the pieces, your bathroom could go from generic to unique instantly. Try replacing the floor of your shower with a wooden surface. The roughness of wood is not only good for your feet, but it will also add a tonne of personality to what can otherwise be just a piece of practical equipment in an otherwise average room.

As you can see, there are ways to use old and distressed objects that can make your home feel special and fresh, why not try some out?

Light Up The Room

One of the places I the home where everyone is sure to look and notice is the ceiling. The fixtures on your ceiling can illuminate the room or create a whirlwind of feelings. Many homeowners have a simple light on the ceilings in the rooms of their home. This is particularly true in the bathroom. However, there are other ways to decorate with ceiling fixtures in the other rooms of your home.

A ceiling fan with a light offers a few purposes. You can use only the light, only the fan or both. This is a good way to cool a room when it is hot without letting a lot of light in the room if you want to keep the area looking natural. A ceiling fan and light combination works in any room of the home, but you should avoid putting one in the bathroom. There are several kinds of light fixtures that you can get for rooms in the house. Teenagers sometimes want a fixture that gives personality to the room such as something bright and vibrant. An elegant fixture can be added to the living room or dining room to give a sophisticated appearance without spending a lot of time and effort.
